the constitution resolve the struggle between freedom of religion and the right of government to regulate society, even when such regulations may interfere with religious doctrines because those are two points are important here. there was a time in this country before 1965 when it was ok for a state to outlaw the use of contraception by married couples. several states had them for ye they were lingering on the books for years and finally, the supreme court in a case called griswold vs. connecticut said it was unconstitutional to prohibit married people from using contraception in the privacy of their own bedroom. does the constitution has a provision that says the government may not -- may prohibit the married couples from using contraception in the bedroom? it does not. it does have to process and the court found there was a right of privacy. for my libertarian friends in the crowd, it means something you happen saying for years -- the government to get out of our lives to the extent possible. we -- we don't cover and having anything to do with are buried sexuality. then, the government cannot

to see the three great religions that sprang forth from our region, judy is on, christianity, and islam, coexist in peace and mutual respect. yet of the evil forces of radical islam, who you just saw storming the american embassies throughout the middle east, they oppose this. they seek supremacy over all muslims. they are bent on world conquest. they want to destroy israel, europe, america. they want to extinguish freedom. they want to end the modern world. militant islam has many branches, from the rulers of iran, with their revolutionary guards, to the al qaeda terrorists, to the radical cells lurking in every part of the globe. but despite their differences, they are all rooted in the same bitter soil of intolerance. that intolerance is directed first to their fellow muslims and then to christians, jews, buddhists, hindus, secular people, anyone who doesn't submit to their unforgiving creed. they want to drag humanity back to an age of unquestioning dogma, unrelenting conflict. i'm sure of one thing -- ultimately, they will fail. ultimately, light will penetrate darkness. we have se

notice and would endanger their reporters. in france, they said, we respect the muslim religion for them, but it is not for us. and they expect us to end our first amendment -- >> we, americans, can not accept that they have their culture and we have ours. we stand for freedom, rights, i don't think that you should back off of those for one moment. we support israel that has their values as well as ours. there is a very different set of police. it is just imposed upon them by political and religious leadership. >> iran. before we get to that, i want to talk about the 1980 presidential election because you were involved with that one as well. and there might be a parallel here that we can discuss. historically, an american presidential elections, 50% of jews to vote for the democratic party. and president carter, the each got 40%. congressman anderson got 20%. those numbers were just historic. it may or may not have influenced the race, but it had a post camp david ethos. yet another un resolution where they passed a resolution saying that jerusalem was occupied. and the occupation of jer

ought to be free, just as jews and christians and hindus ought to be free to practice religion. he was representing american values but i don't think he was apologizing. it is very important that the united states and israel -- this to the first part of your comment -- be together publicly. there is a separation between the u.s. and israeli governments which is not healthy. as in every family, you want to have a united front publicly. it is ok to disagree behind the scenes, but you do not want to disagree in front of adversaries. it is incumbent upon the israelis and americans to show french a publicly. -- show friendship publicly. i side with president obama on this one. prime minister netanyahu of israel has effectively intervene in our campaign here by suggesting that the united states should drop redlines and that we will use military force if iran does x or z. that does not make sense. we do not want to send the military into battle just because iran reaches a certain level of enrichment of uranium. we ought to want our president, whether it is president obama or president rom

not a freedom of expression that targets of a specific religion or a specific coulter -- culture. a freedom of expression that tackles extremism and violence, not the freedom of expression that deepens ignorance and as regards others. -- disregards others. we also as we have said before, and we also stand formally -- firmly against the use of violence in objection to these sentiments. mr. president, before i conclude, i must say that if -- that the severity of the financial and economic crises must lead us to review the economic decision making process on behalf of people that do not participate in their preparation. they are the first to bear the negative consequences in growth and trade and environment, as well as on the social fabric of society. as a result of unfair trade rules and conditionality is composed -- in post. - imposed. there is a need for a new, local, economic government. i say there is an urgent need for a new global economic government, centered on people and aiming at consolidating cooperation between partners and development on the basis of mutual benefit and

believe that muslims should be freed as christians and others should be free to practice their religions. that is all the president is saying. i think it is important that the united states and israel be together here publicly. there is a separation between the u.s. and israeli governments which is not healthy. you want to have a united front publicly. you do not want to disagree in front of our adversaries. we'll have an honest disagreement with the israeli government. prime minister netanyahu has intervened in our political campaign by suggesting the united states should draw military force if iran does x, y, or z. that doesn't make sense to me. we should want our president to be able to use his own judgment at the time to make this decision. i agree with president obama. try to restrain israel and preventing israel from attacking is the right decision. we should support israel. again, i think the president is showing a lot of wisdom here. host: this is a photo from "the new york times."

are engaged in war and we adopted a political theory meaning that terrorism has no religion and it is a common threat regionally and internationally. it requires an necessitates a common effort to fight terrorism within the frame, along with what we did to cement the corporation in combating terrorism with more than 40 nations, and that included all aspects in intelligence exchange, activities, and how best to combat and deter and have a bilateral meeting with those nations. this theory that has been adopted by the yemeni government comes with the understanding of terrorism and today it is not an isolated problem to a specific nation. it is, rather, an international threat from the political, social, economic levels. this will reflect the fierce willingham-- fears that the threats are diversified and transnational. there are lives that they're been lost. we have suffered and we are still suffering from terrorism and we have played a lot with blood and life. many of the public institutions, and it affected tourism. and now most of the hotels in yemen are closed. there are no foreigners at all.
